Baltimore Homicide Detective J. D. Fitzpatrick has seen a lot of horrific violence, both as a cop and during his deployment in Afghanistan, but nothing like the trail of tortured bodies that are turning up throughout the city. He’s up against a brutal killer with a very personal vendetta, and now J. D. is beginning to suspect that his medical examiner may be shielding some crucial evidence linked to the case.

Really enjoyed this book. The narrator just brought it to life. She did a great job on all the different voices. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

Nikki Burgess survived a terrible marriage and a worse divorce. She's just about given up hope of ever finding happiness. But when her ex-husband suddenly dies, she gets custody of her kids again - and a chance to start over. Dixie McPherson, on the other hand, has had way too much love. She has 11 tennis bracelets, dozens of trinkets, piles of sexy lingerie, and a tarnished reputation when all she ever wanted was true love, a partner, and a family. Carlisle Bartlett is loyal, kindhearted, and the funniest guy slinging drinks in the back of an airplane. But he has an ugly little secret. The only kind of love he's used to comes with bruises.

Once Olympia Wingfield had been free to devote all her time to her true passion: the study of ancient legends and long-lost treasure. But now, with three hellion nephews to raise, the absentminded beauty has very little time for research. Which makes it seem all the more serendipitous when a handsome stranger strides into Olympia’s library unannounced and proceeds to set her world to rights.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I enjoy & relisten to all AQ books. Yes, I would definitely recommend this book to my friends. Anne F is one of my favorite narrators, along with Barbara Rosenblat.

What did you like best about this story?

Feisty heroine & a take-charge hero.

Have you listened to any of Anne Flosnik’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. Excellent, as always.

Would you try another book from J. D. Robb and/or Susan Ericksen?

Absolutely. I have all of them. I've listened to JDR books over & over again, but the bad guys in this book were so sick & depraved, I can't take a second time.

What could J. D. Robb have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Maybe tempered the scenes & descriptions a little.

Any additional comments?

SE was wonderful, as always. It's so fun to listen to all the characters. You always know who is talking.

New York book editor Maris Matherly-Reed knows a best seller when she sees one - even if it is just a tantalizing partial manuscript submitted by a writer identified only as P.M.E., with the return address of an obscure island off the Georgia coast. Maris is intrigued enough to search for him.

Where does The Witness [Brilliance Audio Edition] rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This has become one of my favorite NR books. The characters, plot twists, and the narrator were so good, I've listened to it 3 or 4 times.

What does Julia Whelan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brought the characters to life. Loved the 'Brooks' interpretation.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The end - smart finish.
